Volunteer Appreciation Week April 18 – 25

Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.  – Erma Bombeck

Whitevalley Community Resource Centre would like to humbly thank, celebrate, and recognize volunteers in our programs and in our community. Plainly stated; without dedicated volunteers, some of our services just wouldn’t run.  The outbreak of Covid-19 put an unexpected spin on the entire world, making everything a bit more challenging. At Whitevalley Community Resource Centre we are continually conforming to this new reality and engaging volunteers safely.  We especially are thankful for the ones that could continue to devote their time throughout this past year and dearly miss the ones we have not seen throughout the pandemic.  

With new equipment, procedures and protocol, we were able to continue our Volunteer Drive Program, ensuring that local senior citizens were able to get to medical and health care appointments. 

We were able to shift gears in our meal services for seniors and still continue to provide nutritious, affordable meals that are readily available all week long.  All of this has been supported by volunteers.  We have also witnessed volunteers preform many self-less acts such as; bottle collecting and sorting, snow removal and yard maintenance, and generous donations. 

Again, we would like to say a huge “thank you” to each and every volunteer in our community.  To give so much of oneself and expect nothing in return is truly a wonderful gift.
